Brewster....we all are a part of the GD, band....fans....tapers. Put those SB's up again! Jeeze, what a no-brainer! (no, not me...well.. sometimes like Bob)
Call their bluff (whoever "they" are)
what a bunch of blowhardyness! heh
Bob Weir is a good man, don't do the GW crapass on him, Jerry loved him and so do I. (uh oh, here it comes!)
Bob has not pulled the RD SB's (like...he owns them?)
Just DO IT! shhhhheeeeeezzzzzzzz!

We've heard from Phil, we've heard from Bob. Go to Mickey Hart's web site and read what he has to say. Looks like Bobby has alienated himself, nice goin' bro! If this IS one big family then Bob needs a time out!

I don't know about the ethical problems involved, and the legal issues are way way beyond me. Copyright laws have always been iffy, and the internet complicates further that convoluted legal mishmash.

But I can say that, in my single paticular case, the Archive has made money for the Grateful Dead.

I was not a huge fan five months ago. I had American Beauty, Best of (don't kill me) thats it. You can see where this is going...

The Dead, obviously, they function as a completely different creature in concert. It was not long until I was locked in the death spiral into musical depth that is all too common for those who know the band. I just bought two Dicks Picks (7+8) and Blues for Allah. I would not have without Archive, I would not have become a true addict without the SBDS. So let me cry out: "Free the soundboards!" because surprising as it may seem to the buisness people who advised this action, but it's possible that the band's and the fan's interests are one and the same. It's ludicrous to concieve that I am the only one who is a fan almost exclusively because of the Archive. From a musical standpoint, share the love with as many as possible. From a marketing standpoint, here is a whole new generation ready to buy (not steal) CD's

I'm sorry, the most constructive thing you can do here now is *not* to go on discussing this here. Please see

Hi Diana,

Will this thread of posts be saved? I keep thinking that it's really a document of some sort. I mean I'm sure someone can do some kind of study on web commmunities and their impact on blah blah blah, you know? There seems to be some real sincere communal thrashing about here and I guess I'd like to know that it won't just disappear into the cybersphere. For what it's worth -- thank you all for your efforts trying to find the right path with this one.

Peace for the coming New Year --

Jordan

AFAIK, stuff will be here for people to be embarrassed over years later. :/
